Speaker Dr. Katja Rowell was introduced by P/E Alice Meyer, as a medical physician, author, and member of Wenatchee Confluence Rotary.   Katja serves on the Spoon medical advisory committee for US programs, which currently only includes Oregon (soon in WA), stating that the Spoon Foundation fits perfectly within the ideals of Rotary.
The program expanded to the US from Europe earlier this year to Oregon by two moms who adopted severely malnourished children.  Its mission is unique in the world, also serving special-needs kids.  It operates in 17 countries, where malnutrition is common in orphanages (there are about 8 million kids in orphanages worldwide, and 70-90% are malnourished).  They focus mainly on anemia in kids under 3.  Trainers use a special iPad application called "Count Me In", which provides specific treatment instructions.
By including highly vulnerable children in efforts towards better nutrition, SPOON contributes to achieving health for all, attaining the sustainable development goals, and supporting the transformation of child care systems to provide family care for every child. We are doing our part to ensure that millions of children experience one less barrier to enjoying the quality of life they deserve.

This presentation will be an overview of the Ice Age (Missoula) Floods story of the Pacific Northwest.  The “Fire” portion of the talk will highlight the Columbia River Basalt Group (eastern WA) while the “Ice” portion will illustrate the Ice Age Floods of the Pacific Northwest.  The interaction between the Ice Age Flood waters and the Columbia River Basalts played a key role in the formation of the channeled scab lands of Eastern Washington.  The floods story from Glacial Lake Missoula in NW Montana to the Pacific Ocean will be highlighted in the program.
